Don thanks so much for allowing me to manage my relatives grave. I really appreciate your work with findagrave. I was thrilled to find Celestia Howell's grave and grateful for your taking the time to document her memorial for my family. Thanks - Steve Howell

National Burial Database of Enslaved Americans
Hi, Don:

I am reminded that I told you about a year and a half ago that the Perwinkle report's Burial Database of Enslaved Americans was due out shortly, and that it might shed light on the Dinah Tenbrook/Dinah Ten Broek question.

The report is delayed, and they are prioritizing burial grounds dedicated to enslaved persons. I'm afraid it may be a while before any light is shed on her name and history. I'm on their mailing list; I'll let you know if there's any progress.

Find A Grave Memorial# 180058915
Hi, Don:

I've just transferred this memorial to you. When I searched no memorial in her name showed up, but when I linked to her husband yours popped up. (I don't know why some pre-existing memorial fail to show up on a search, but I'm beginning to wonder if it happens when the full date of death is searched, but the existing memorial has only the year of death. Doesn't really make sense, but it's all I can figure.)

Anyway, I'm transferring management because the memorial I created has a lot of information yours doesn't have. It seems easier to simply move your photo to this one than move all the information to yours. However, if you'd rather do that, then transfer the stripped memorial back to me and I'll delete it. (The way I understand it you can't delete a memorial transferred to you -- only the creator can.)

Sorry I couldn't make it easier :(

Thank you
I just happened upon my Great Aunt (#162532904) and Uncle's (#162532858) memorials and wanted to thank you for adding them and posting a gravemarker photo. I had always hoped to one day get to all my New Jersey family's memorials in person but am very excited to see them on Findagrave. I had been searching for a death date for him for some time and finally had that answered by the photo.

I suggested edits to link my Great Grandparents and their spousal relationships. I will go ahead and add flowers.

I see you have a lot of memorials so you may not care and I will add it in my comments, but my Great Uncle was named Henry but called Harry his whole life. He was also a very good artist. He did folk art style landscapes.

Thank you again for posting memorials for them and a photo. I appreciate it!

This is Pertaining Sarah Lenora Hanford
Hi i was wondering how you connected Sarah Lenora Hanford to Sarah Grant? The reason i ask is because Sarah Grant wasn't married to a hanford, her middle name doesnt even start with an L its elizabeth and she was married to Sylvester Strait and is buried in Maple Grove Cemetery in Candor NY, i was just curious how this was connected.
